Jannik had a dialog with INSCALEs previous employee, Niels Wøhlk, over a longer period of time. QualiWare already used different recruitment agencies that they were working with, and they also worked with Inhouse recruitment, so to begin with there was not a need for INSCALEs services and TaaS. However, after having spent over a year trying to recruit for the role Jannik wanted to try something else. In the past year, they had not gotten a lot of applicants, and the ones that they did get lacked the right skill set. Therefore Jannik reached out to INSCALE to ask for help in hiring for the applications architect role.
“I found the Talent as a Service model quite interesting. There are a lot of advantages from my point of view in the Talent as a Service solution, and that is obviously the part that you actually take the cost and split it over a long period of time. But also you have what I would say is quite an extended warranty compared to other recruitment services. So I found the model interesting and I thought that if we should try something else after more than a year of recruiting we should give it a try.”
The process started with a presentation of relevant stakeholders, a clear description of the role and was then followed up with regular meetings to ensure knowledge of the process.
With the help of INSCALE Jannik got 4-5 interviews with candidates that were already pre-screened to ensure that they had the right qualifications and were a cultural match for the company. From there he went on to select the candidate that was the best match.
“INSCALE managed to in a very short period of time actually have a wider selection of candidates that enabled us to go through the candidates as they came in. With INSCALE, we had fewer candidates than we are used to, but they fit it better and they were actually on a higher competence level than we are used to. So in general, I think that the quality of the profiles that we got back from INSCALE was higher than, what we are we used to.”
